I got the information on this french website. This is a pretty good website but it has not been updated for a long time. I tried to search quickly the exact page but I could not find out.

Concerning "La femme d'argent", I think I had heard it was somehow linked with an old french movie. I'll try to find out more on this.

About "Amour Imagination Rêve". I've read in a French book about Air, it says :
"Air. Il y a trois lettres dans ce mot : A pour Amour, I pour Imagination, R pour rêve." Jean-Benoît Dunck, l'un des deux cerveaux de Air, a bien résumé son oeuvre.

Translation : "JB, one of the two brains of Air has summed up his work in a good way".

Hi Dirty Thib and Colas

Thanks alot for this information.

What's the name of this book ? Is it "Air de A à Z" by Jennifer Lesieur ?


I would really like to get this book by the way, maybe anyone from france could get it for me...

Now i remember that the first time i read about "Amour Imagination Rêve" it was on the Website that Colas mentioned....

Yes, it's that book. But I don't think it's possible to find a France anymore, I can't find any books of this collection, I would like to buy the one about Sonic Youth but I don't find them, though once a time there a lot of these out there. Moreover, this book is not updated, it finishes with the release of Everybody hertz.

Nicolas said in an interview that "Amour Imagination Rêve" is a myth.

I like to think of Bach though... Since they're both Bach fans... "Air"...

ARe you saying Air is just the air that we breath?
